Ivy Bridge 20 percent faster than Sandy

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Intel claims
Intel is already talking to its partners about its upcoming 22nm Ivy Bridge CPU, and it is sharing some hints of performance. One of the things that Intel told recently is that this 22nm processor should offer more performance with a similar thermal envelope.

Intel tells its partners that they can expect around 20 percent performance increase from Sandy Bridge, which is roughly the same gain that Sandy Bridge had over Nehalem based CPUs. This is an optical shrink of the existing 32nm Sandy Bridge architectureas Intel traditionally takes a safe approach when moves from one manufacturing process to another. The 22nm part after Ivy Bridge is the one with the new architecture, while Ivy Bridge's first competition are Bulldozer and Llano from AMD.

Intel's Ivy Bridge will work in H67 and P67 boards and it will fit in existing boards for both desktop and mobile parts. We already reported about it here.

And in Z68?

As much as we have a go at Intel for requiring us to replace the motherboard every time we change the CPU this time i think its probably worth changing.

Ivy Bridge mobo will bring full SATA3, PCi-Ex 3.0 and you would really think USB3 but Intel might be dicks about it all and say if you want a fast connection then use our Lightpeak.

Sandy will be compatible with Z68,same with Ivy and P67,they will use same socket,so thats nice one from Intel.

Wow if 20% over Sandybridge is true then things aren't looking great for Bulldozer. Had hoped AMD could match Intel on performance with Bulldozer but its doubtful it the 20% over Sandy is correct.

Are Ivybridge cpu's going to arrive before Bulldozer cpu's?

Horses for courses. I expect Bulldozer will do very well indeed in the server space. Server space is higher margin than desktop too.

It's 20% at the same TDP, not the same clock speed.
Of course higher clocks will be possible.

Bulldozer arrives in June, Ivy Bridge next year.

Bulldozer will offer four dual-core modules at the price of Intel's four cores with HT, while providing better multithreaded performance.
Right now we don't know how they'll compare clock for clock against Sandy Bridge.

Guys, when reporting something official (Be it Intel, Nvidia or whatever), would you mind linking to the source statement?

Thanks.

That's it ?!... A lower node and all they could come up with is 20%. Well people, if you bought Nehalem or Sandy don't be stupid to upgrade. What you have is fast enough.

@hoohoo, BD will also do good in the consumer space... a lot of the user-swaing power has platform compatibility and price.

this isn't official
this is Intel officially talking to its partners, that officially need to keep their mouths shut about it.

Firstly this 20% increase will be just TDP to TDP not real performance.

Also, no one has said that it is CPU performance that is increasing. It could just as easily be the GPU increasing by 20% which is a lot less impressive!

Intel's lightpeak is better and faster but nobody supports it yet. I would stick with SATA600 and USB 3.0 along with PCIE 3 for now.
